About The Club
UMass first developed a club lacrosse program in 1986. In 2005, the club was required to make cuts for the first time, as over 80 students came out for the team. This participation boon was repeated in 2006. This past year, over 100 students competed for a spot on the team. For the first time in the club’s history, the overwhelming level of interest led to the formation of a second team. The two teams are comprised of students from all over the Northeast, including high school all-Americans, league and state all-stars and state champions. They come to UMass with vast experience and skill, as well as a strong record of success.
In the last few years, the schedule has developed in competitive strength and number from eight local games to eighteen games. One team competes in the Northeast Collegiate Lacrosse League (NECLL) to defend the league and championship title. The NECLL includes Western New England College, Westfield State, Dartmouth, Tufts and UVM. The other team competes against schools from the Pioneer Lacrosse League. In addition, the club competes against Fairfield University, Sacred Heart University and Harvard University varsity lacrosse programs.
